Excellent audio book! Very informative

Great course pitched at the right level. A lot of additional 'pro-tip' information is provided, such as how to set up a rolling calendar, which is extremely useful to know for upcoming projects. Very clear descriptions presented well with quality supporting data. Looking forward to the rest of the course material. I am so excited by taking this book. I did half of it so far, and all lectures and labs are straight forward and easy to follow. I recommend this course for anyone wants to learn Power BI from scratch and Architecture of convolutional neural networks. Many thanks to Anthony.

Good course

This is my third PowerBI course and so far the best one yet. William Bahl is a great instructor, and he takes his time explaining each feature of the program. I was impressed by his depth of knowledge of the subject and his teaching style. I particularly enjoyed the How to use MNIST vision dataset section, because he used plenty of examples to create measures and calculated fields. Thanks for this such a great learning audiobook.

Looks great! so informative

I've just started reading the book. Looks great. It's not a big book at just over 200 pages but in some ways that's good.
It's focused on concepts of building data models which is a critical skill for finance analysts.
Is focused on practical examples and illustrations.

I've bought all of the previous books by these authors and found them all to be great.
This book is a must have for anyone transitioning from Excel to Power BI and is taught in a manner that is helpful.

I have many other books and this book does set the set standard for Excel users moving to Power BI.
Excel will get frustrated with Power BI unless they have a good foundation of Power BI and how to develop models, relationships, calculated columns and measures.

Excellent audio book!

Excellent audio book! Very informative, and love the real world example. The Real world applications of data analysis and what are commonly used convolution filters are good indicators if I'm understanding the material, or need to revisit it. Challenges? Sometimes it is difficult to keep up because of changes in User Interface due to monthly MS updates. This course makes a wonderful job in explaining Power BI environment and its functions. It shines because of its excellent structure, where you get a peek at the final report at the beginning and then you build it step by step with a clear vision where this is going. Also, highlighting of important stuff is done really well.

This course provides a detailed overview...

This course provides a detailed overview of what someone starting out needs to learn in order to feel like they have a solid foundation to build on. A lot of Power BI courses on the Audible platform seem to break into multiple courses what the author has explained in one comprehensive study package. I found Anthony's teaching style to be reassuring and paced very well for my comprehension. I will feel reassured coming back to review aspects of the Audios as I try some of this stuff out in the real world.


Of course, it's unlikely the course will have covered everything there is to know on Power BI but again, for what it is titled as it fulfills its remit and I feel equipped to push on & learn lots more. Would take other courses by this instructor.
One suggestion for future development would be for Anthony and team to put together a course to introduce more advanced concepts of Power BI use e.g. I've encountered YouTube videos or web pages showing Variables & multi-line dax measures and also the importance of Cardinality and sometimes unavoidable many to many relationship data models. I would be keen on a course that broke down these concepts in a student friendly manner like I found this course to be.

An educational, well-structured, and helpful guide

An educational, well-structured, and helpful guide! The author guided me in learning Power BI the easy way. Very helpful information at any point in life, especially if you're trying to work through a rough time. I can say that this is a very enlightening and supportive book for the individuals who need to learn these programming languages. Exactly what I needed. All of my questions were answered. If you're looking for enterprise-level Power BI deployment, this is the bible. I learned a lot about best practices, and what I already knew was explained very clearly. After I listened to this book, I would say that it build my confidence in creating effective charts, tables, reports, and dashboards in any kind of data using the tips and techniques in Microsoft BI. This is an excellent audiobook for all BI developers. I would rate it five stars.

The book fills in the gaps

The book fills in the gaps and offers multiple solutions to one problem. Good illustrations and examples help concretize through practice. Doesn't require an advanced user background in Power BI, but a reasonable understanding of how to use it is a must. Highly recommended to everyone who wants to learn more about Power BI.

This audiobook is what I really need! Thanks!

This book did not meet my particular needs, I think it is fine for a different audience.
The book's title contains the words "Power BI", it is really a primer on how to structure a relational database. I am a business professional who is highly conversant with both Excel and Access. I am not, however, the person who is responsible for laying out all the data tables. I sometimes need to take data from multiple sources and perform analysis which I want to visualize.

I bought the book hoping to get insight into how to take my existing analyses and create awesome Power BI visualizations with only modest modification of the underlying data structures. This book really meet that need. I'm recommending this great audiobook to everyone who wants to learn more about this field.

As a newcomer to Power BI, this was a very good introduction course! Started at a new job with new tools and without anyone to train me. I feel like I had a very thorough training now! Many thanks to Anthony.

This book is amazing and useful

This book is amazing and useful. I will continue to listen to this book over and over again till I can completely take full information about power BI. This has pretty good formatting for self-help. Definitely different, and definitely worth getting into. I cant say its something that would work for me, but I know theirs many it would probably help.

I would like to tell everybody, this book is really great. This is the best power BI book I have ever read. The writer breaks things done into basic straightforward components. I loved the way that it was guided and all the information within. I have learned so much. I have to say that this book intrigued me much more than another other book has! Thank you
